The effective treatment of central nervous system diseases is a major challenge due to the presence of the blood-brain barrier (BBB). P-aminophenyl-α-d-mannopyranoside (MAN), a kind of mannose analog, was conjugated onto the surface of liposomes (MAN-LIP) to enhance the brain delivery. In this study, we investigated the brain distribution of MAN-LIP based(More)
MicroRNA-1 (miR-1) has been found in cardiac and skeletal tissues. It is overexpressed in ischemic cardiac tissues. Down-regulation of miR-1 could relieve arrhythmogenesis by the anti-miR-1 antisense oligonucleotides (AMO-1). To increase the therapeutic efficiency and inhibit off-target effects of AMO-1, here we explored anti-cardiac troponin I (cTnI)(More)
Nanotechnology is a growing science that has applications in various areas of medicine. The composition of nanocarriers for drug delivery is critical to guarantee high therapeutic performance when targeting specific host sites. Applications of nanotechnology are prevalent in the diagnosis and treatment of infectious and inflammatory diseases. This review(More)
Protein phosphorylation catalyzed by kinases plays essential roles in various intracellular processes. With an increasing number of phosphorylation sites verified experimentally by high-throughput technologies and assigned as substrates of specific kinases, prediction of potential kinase-substrate relations (KSRs) attracts increasing attention. Although a(More)
In this study, we reported a strategy to improve delivery efficiency of a long-circulation biomimetic photothermal nanoagent for enhanced photothermal therapy through selectively dilating tumor vasculature. By using a simply nanocoating technology, a biomimetic layer of natural red blood cell (RBC) membranes was camouflaged on the surface of photothermal(More)
The blood-brain barrier is a formidable obstacle for glioma chemotherapy due to its compact structure and drug efflux ability. In this study, a dual-targeting drug delivery system involving Angiopep-2-conjugated biodegradable polymersomes loaded with doxorubicin (Ang-PS-DOX) was developed to exploit transport by the low-density lipoprotein receptor-related(More)
Congenital macular coloboma is characterized by defined punched out atrophic lesions of the macula. The present study aimed to investigate the genetic alterations of one Chinese sporadic patient with bilateral large macular coloboma. Complete ophthalmic examinations, including best‑corrected visual acuity, slit‑lamp examination, fundus examination, fundus(More)
